Excellent, puts pressure on EchoStar to table a decent bid way before the deadline... Probably just to make them over pay, but who cares!

Well it means that Eutelsat can sit back and watch while Echostar have to bid by 6th July

15:16 Inmarsat takeover bid? https://www.bbc.com/news/live/business-44574859 Shares in Inmarsat are almost 5% higher after Eutelsat confirmed a Bloomberg report that it was considering a takeover bid. One trader said there was a "small question mark" over how the French company would finance such a deal, given that Eutelsat is worth €4.1bn (£3.6bn), while Inmarsat is valued at about £2.8bn. A spokeswoman for Inmarsat declined to comment

Many congrats folks, must have been a very big challenge to keep the faith. Aleman, thought you had this wrong have to admit. You have a great knack of seeing value which sometimes alludes others, as demonstrated by your record over the years on ADVFN. Well done.

I tend to agree with you, Steeplejack, and unless a rival bidder appears on the scene before the 6 July I'd expect an uplifted offer by Echostar but below the £7 but all IMHO.

ISAT is a capital intensive business with very good growth prospects pity that the uk seems to dislike this kind of investment. Maybe better if the Americans run it and rack up charges for users.

Presumably, if they think its so cheap, they can go hostile (which it appears they have begun) and just buy in the market, good luck to them, but that would drive the price over £10 on its own would guess.Buying the debt is clever and puts pressure on the board to sort this out quickly...

Echostar have also bought 10% of the convertible bonds which again supports the narrative that they are serious abour this (at the right price!)

I think your thoughts are not that wide of the mark.Echostar shareholders will demand that the company doesn’t overpay for ISAT and,understandably,the starting consideration is how the market values Inmarsat .You can’t pretend that the price never fell to the mid 300s but a couple of months back.Rightly or wrongly,at that point in the company’s history,the stockmarket had a very low opinion of ISATs worth.(Helped of course by an almost incomprehensible dividend policy).Is Echostar simply to ignore the recent valuation placed upon Inmarsat and now pay ten pounds a share,getting on for near three times the recent years low?If I was an Echostar shareholder I’d be asking a lot of questions if that occurred.The Echostar management will wish to get the best deal they can.If they can get ISAT for seven quid (twice the recent low) then they’ll offer just that and they’ll be a lot of funds who will be more than grateful to receive a price double the low earlier in the year.That’s City short term thinking for you.

But, on the other hand , no other bid may materialise , EchoStar decide not to pursue , and we are back where we started in terms of fundamentals. Like most holders I will sit back and wait and be prepared to curse .

Id agree gold bug...the floor is set around 550....so id expect it will saty here - even without echo start bidding...but i think its going to get bought out at around 10-12£ myself

I hope so Gambo and I think today’s news certainly reduces the risk of holding, so in a way there is a degree of free optionality attached to the share at the current price.

id agree - plus a bit more....personally i think well see 8-9 a share plus another bidder. So i think 11-12 take out bid. Based on sign off for ligado.....once its up for sale - which it is - a few will want this company. I held for a year and sold on the 8th (silly Boy) taking a loss....however thought trading that day was looking strange...DOH Anyway I boughT back at 5.11 on Monday 11th and still believe they will make the year high plus 20-30%...so 10-11. I believed that when I bought them...Maybe echostar was shorting the stock for the pat several months to get the price down!??

Echostar will be very hard pressed to get shareholders to accept a price much under its 52 week high.

Giles Thorne, a satellite equity analyst at Jefferies, had a slightly different take on the events of Friday. In a research note published today, he said the EchoStar bid for Inmarsat is not about sector consolidation but rather about spectrum. “We think Dish is looking for negotiating leverage following news that Ligado could be on the cusp of finally getting its license modification reinstated,” he said. “If we’re wrong, Inmarsat shareholders could hold out for as much as 11 pounds per share. If we’re right, they should be pushing for something even higher. This is only the beginning, in our view.”
